The curtain falls on LogiMAT 2019, and the results are impressive: The 17th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management can once again boast significant gains across all relevant indicators—including double-digit percentage growth in the all-important metrics of visitor count and internationalization. A total of 1,624 companies (+3.8 percent) from 42 countries (+11 percent), including 250 first-time exhibitors, gathered this year to present their latest developments and system solutions for efficient intralogistics to an audience of industry professionals. LogiMAT 2019 extended its footprint to include Hall 2 and the gallery space in Hall 1, expanding the exhibit space by another 7,500 square meters to a total of over 120,000 square meters (+2.6 percent) and occupying the entire Messe Stuttgart convention center for the first time. The net exhibit space also grew 7.8 percent to 64,348 square meters.

LogiMAT 2019 attracted a total of 61,740 industry professionals (+11.5 percent) over three days, representing year-on-year growth of well over 10% for the third year in a row, according to event organizer EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH in Munich. Exhibitors rank visitor count as critical to their success at trade shows. “The tremendous response from the industry far exceeded our most ambitious expectations,” declares Exhibition Director Michael Ruchty. “LogiMAT 2019 was a visitor magnet. The visitor count surged past the 60,000 mark, nearly doubling in just five years even as the quality of the event and its attendees has remained equally high. This underscores the show’s value as in important information platform for industry professionals. Exhibitors, for their part, benefit from the high volume of visitors, which offers them better market exposure and boosts their sales.”

The visitor analysis compiled by the independent market research institute of Wissler & Partner from Basel, Switzerland, found that 42.7 percent of industry professionals who attended LogiMAT 2019 came with specific plans for investments. This is reflected in reports of the many sales contracts that were inked at the 17th LogiMAT. Some 22.6 percent of attendees from the industry either awarded a contract at the event or planned to do so immediately afterward.

This year’s LogiMAT was once again more international than previous editions. Over a third of industry professionals in attendance (35.5 percent) came from more than 300 kilometers away, and more than 20 percent came from abroad, including 9.5 percent from Asia or elsewhere overseas. A full 29 percent of the exhibitors who used LogiMAT 2019 as a platform to present their products came from abroad. Some 90 exhibitors came from Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan, and the United States—two-thirds of them from China and Taiwan alone.

In addition, 86 percent of visitors held decision-making authorities within their companies, including 58 percent of those in the industrial sector and 14.5 percent in wholesale and retail. “Many LogiMAT exhibitors have aligned the focus of their products and exhibits in recent years toward optimizing logistical processes in commerce, especially e-commerce,” explains Dr. Petra Seebauer, Managing Director of EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH. “Intralogistics and trade offer each other common synergies here. With its TradeWorld platform, LogiMAT is focusing on the unique logistical challenges in the growth market of e-commerce, covering the entire process chain in commerce.”

LogiMAT has ultimately benefited from the challenges of digital transformation and the extraordinary solutions offered by exhibitors. “The final tally from this year’s 17th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management is a validation of the event’s forward-looking concept—the perfect synthesis of exhibitor platform, business-oriented trade show, and first-hand experience with forward-looking intralogistics,” Ruchty concludes. “As the world’s most important industry trade show for the European market, LogiMAT showcases products and innovations that reflect all the latest trends in future-ready intralogistics.”

The next LogiMAT opens its doors in just eight weeks, from April 15 to 17, 2019, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in China.

The 18th LogiMAT returns to Stuttgart from March 10 to 12, 2020.
